Sorry for the rather late notice, but I’m glad I paid attention to this event in time.
Some Campus Crusade guys and gals are participating in a “blogference” this Monday through Wednesday – but it’s open to everybody (I checked).
For all the details, check out the Campus Crusade Blog-Ference Facebook group.
The topics to be discussed include:
- Approaches to Evangelism (moderated by Brian Barela at http://www.brianbarela.typepad.com/)
- Social Media & Ministry (Kelly Cain at http://www.kellycain.com/)
- Shepherding (Brian Virtue at http://www.blogginbeav.blogspot.com/)
- Observing the Supernatural on Campus (Daniel Curran at http://danielcurran.blogspot.com/)
- Leading Change within Campus Crusade for Christ (Ken Cochrum at http://onleadingwell.blogspot.com/)
- Discussion of an article by Bill Bright (Joe Cross at http://www.crosschronicles.com/)
What is a blogference, you ask? From what I can tell, various “hosts” will start each day with a blog post to get the ball rollin’. Then – through comments, I guess? – discussion ensues!
I honestly did ask the organizer, Brian Barela, about outsiders participating, and he not only okayed it, he said they want more outside involvement.
But this is also a pretty cool chance to play the fly-on-the-wall role for some “insider” Crusade discussions. Obviously, the last topic listed above will have lots of Crusade-chatter, but I imagine with a large number of Cru participants, we’ll get to see the wisdom, creativity, ideas, frustrations, hopes, and other learnings from the most prominent college ministry in America.
Why not take that chance? Obviously, since it’s a blogference, there are multiple levels of participation – from reading and writing actively during the 3 days, to just reading along, to catching up after all is said and done.
In any case, it’s a great (and FREE) opportunity. I hope you’ll join me.
